How IOM Helps
We’re building communities, doing research, creating curriculum and defining practices that drive leadership effectiveness, individual excellence and business performance
Membership and Community
IOM is a big tent for leaders in business, science, healthcare, education, non-profit and government organizations. Together, we’re building a global learning community, to advance the practice of science-based mindfulness for personal and organizational performance — and a platform for shared experiences, best practices and lesson-learned at the front lines of today’s workplace.
Over the past three decades, thousands of studies have confirmed the neural, biological and psychological outcomes of mindfulness — but only a handful have focused on the adoption, efficacy or impact of mindfulness in organizational or management sciences. Our mission includes sponsoring studies, conducting original research, and providing greater access to reporting from around the world.
Education and Certification
A widespread adoption of mindfulness in the modern organization requires consistent teaching and coaching standards, a rigorously secular and science-based curriculum, effective certification, and a system of measures, metrics and analytics to track and document business results. With the help of our members, we’re designing the blueprint and tools for this “enterprise-ready” mindfulness.
